Comment: Akatsuki no Yona 115 — Council of War

*Internal screaming*
[WARNING!] Spoilers for chapter 115 of Akatsuki no Yona (duh!)


I wasn't expecting much from this chapter. In fact, when the title was revealed days after 114 was released, I expected it to be exactly what it suggested: a strategy meeting between the Kouka Elites over what would be the best course of action around the problem. I expected, perhaps, Jae-ha, Yona&Lili to make another appearance at the end.
Of all things that could happen, I did not, for the life of me, think that Su-Won and Hak would face each other. Not in this chapter. Not yet, at least. An the raw emotion in this chapter is simply outstanding...  We had never seen Hak's anger and resentment towards Su-Won manifest itself until chapter 91, where he pretty much loses it when he sees him, but the situation has changed. As he monologues in chapter 114, he now knows he has people with him he can rely on. He knows Yona is safe. He trusts she is, and this, as well as an innate feeling of righteousness, is what leads him to answer back: "I will signal you at dawn." It mirrors Yona's reaction back in the Water Tribe arc, where she puts aside her personal feelings for the common good. The enemy right now is not Su-Won: it's Sei, and something must be done to save the kidnapped men and women.
The reality is mortifying. Hak has to break down this wall himself, which implies him facing Su-Won and holding back the overpowering need to murder him. But can he do it? Not even he seems to know the answer to this.......

..... next chapter out on the 4th of December, pretties. Try to stay alive until then.
